I bought it from a used bookstore years ago. The story isn't epic or moving, but it's cute and filled with little gems: "When you sell a man a book you don't sell him just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life."
It's just the sort of book you curl up with for an afternoon (a short afternoon- it's only 160 pages) to reinforce your bibliophilia.
You should also read The Haunted Bookshop, which is a sequel to Parnassus. I think I liked Parnassus better, but it's also enjoyable to make the acquaintance of the young man and woman in The Haunted Bookshop. That book features some mystery having to do with German spies (it was published in 1918).
There are some interesting LT reviews about The Haunted Bookshop. I was just reading some of them, and you might like to have a look at them, too.
No constructive criticism. I just wanted to share my new purchase with everyone.
